About this title:

Synopsis: This book explores the language ideologies and linguistic practices of a group of working class German Turkish males during the late 1990s. It shows with ethnographic detail that Germany's infamous "kanak sprak" is actually only one of several codes available to this group of immigrant youths, and is used consciously and intentionally. Based on eight months of fieldwork this study details how in the creation of this new code is created as a metalinguistic symbol of identity, and how it is used to index collective group identity. (Series: Spektrum. Berliner Reihe zu Gesellschaft, Wirtschaft und Politik in Entwicklungsl√?¬?√?¬§ndern/Berlin Series on Society, Economy and Politics in Developing Countries - Vol. 91)
